After writing to Nick Mannion at Wiley Publishing last week I'm happy to say my copy was promptly replaced with a new hard cover copy. I can safely say the response has been five-star.
As someone who has done a fair amount of programming I found the book easy to follow, although the nature of the material means there is a fair amount of theory to take on board before you can do anything useful. For those starting programming there are some useful and well-illustrated pages explaining basic programming concepts.
The accompanying website has the code snippets for download but if there is any additional content, I haven't found it. I would have liked to have seen more there - after all, its what the book is about - and I would still have splashed out for the paper copy.
I hope Jon Duckett is planning more books. I'd buy one on Java.
Only four stars because the binding of the book is desperately poor. After a week a chunk of pages started coming out. Returning to Amazon for a swap and I hope to be luckier with the next one. I wonder if the hardback version suffers from the same problem.
One of the features that stands out for me is for each example in the book it gives you a written description, flow diagram, code (with comments) and also example files that you can download, so if you have trouble reading laborious written descriptions of what the code is doing and rather just view it diagrammatically you can.
This one is definitely a keeper.
As was the case with his previous book, Duckett again doesn’t disappoint in terms of design resources – inside numerous samples of codes and user exercises can be found that enable novice Java web designer to start working instantly.Read more ›
Disclosure stuff: I was sent a free copy of this by the publishers. From 2000-2002 I worked with its author. I currently work with Mathias Bynens, the book’s technical reviewer (but didn’t know this until after reading it).
The book looks beautiful. High quality paper, colour images, with real care and attention lavished on the layout and the words. I’m no quivering aethete designer, but I found it pleasurable to read even though it’s a weighty 600 page tome. Each page (or spread) is its own discrete infolump so it’s easy to out down and come back to.
It starts light – defining events, objects, methods and properties, showing the relationship between HTML, CSS and JS, and with a section on Progressive Enhancement (hoorah). However, I was slightly peturbed that the first worked example uses document.write.Read more ›
